About the Movement Disorders Journal
Movement Disorders, the official Journal of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS), is a highly read and referenced journal covering all topics of the field - both clinical and basic science.
We are pleased to advise the readership of Movement Disorders that the impact factor for the journal has increased to 4.558. This ranks 24th among 190 clinical neurology journals, and represents the 5th consecutive year in which the impact factor of the journal has increased. Indeed, all major measures of the journal's performance have improved including the 5-year impact factor, total citations, immediacy index, citation half-life, Eigenfactor, and article influence factor.
The journal's Eigenfactor ranked 8th among all clinical neurology journals. Eigenfactor is an increasingly important rating which considers the quality of journals in which citations to articles occur, and provides a measure of a journal's total importance to the scientific community. We are grateful for the contributions of the editorial board and reviewers, and are hopeful that clinical and basic science researchers in the field of Movement Disorders will continue to send their best papers to Movement Disorders.
The average length of time from acceptance to launch on the Journal website (official publication date) is approximately 6 weeks.
